    Hi All,

    I am not exactly a noob at using WHM, but there are many parts of it that I have never used before.

    I plan on copying about 40 sites from one server to another. I copied a simple one, with no MySQL databases, or anything but a static site really, and it worked just fine.

    My question is, how are MySQL databases handled using this function? I have smarty installed on a number of domains, will my smarty-based php apps have any problems? Or will it all just work?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    The 'Transfers' script should copy all data over to the new server including MySQL.

    The only problems you may have with your scripts would be with server paths or database connections if different on this new server.


    If the old server was also cPanel then the move should be flawless. If not then you will have to edit paths and database/db_user info in the script's config files.

    Moving from a cPanel environment to a cPanel, so I guess I will pull the trigger and see how it goes.
